All who are led by God’s Spirit are God’s sons and daughters. 15 You didn’t receive a spirit of slavery to lead you back again into fear, but you received a Spirit that shows you are adopted as his children. With this Spirit, we cry, “ Abba, Father. ” 16 The same Spirit agrees with our spirit, that we are God’s children. 17 But if we are children, we are also heirs. We are God’s heirs and fellow heirs with Christ, if we really suffer with him so that we can also be glorified with him.

From the writers of “Song of the Shadows and “Harvest of Sorrows” comes this profoundly moving work for Holy Week. The Weeping Tree is a poignant portrait of the cross that uses beloved hymns, newly composed music, thoughtful narration, and simple sacred symbols to create a touching testament of grace for choirs of every size. By offering the smaller orchestral accompaniment option along with the shorter performance time, The Weeping Tree is accessible to choirs that have before been unable to include a cantata in their Lenten and Holy Week services. Profoundly affecting!
